What are your thoughts on apprenticeships for individuals?
Apprenticeships schemes are a gateway for young individuals and present a great vocational career path for those who possess a mix of practical and theoretical skills. Due to the recent introduction of the new apprentice standards, apprenticeships are now more widely available in more diverse career paths. For those individuals not wishing to remain in full-time formal education, apprenticeships offer a first step into the work place through a robust training curriculum, providing them with tangible, transferable skills. These skills will form the foundation for a multitude of potential careers.
What apprenticeship scheme do you offer?
At Phillips 66 we offer apprenticeships in a variety of engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, piping and welding. Each year our apprenticeship vacancies and application process are advertised through HETA.
We also offer limited work experience places, available for those interested in apprenticeships, year 11 upwards. Applications for our work experience are accepted all year-round and takes place in April, prior to apprenticeship on site interviews. It is a great opportunity to experience more about the industry, and your future career options.
What skills do you look for when recruiting?
